1st PPG Drawing by CMcC 1st PPG Drawing by CMcC
OK I'm having fun with this DA thing so I've dug waaaaaaay back and found this... the first drawing of The Powerpuff Girls (then the Whoopass Girls) ever! Done in 1991, ( Gaaah 17 years ago!!) if it looks strange it's 'cause it was done on orange construction paper only 1 inch big.

Notice Bubbles' and Buttercup's colors are switched. I actually remember changing it by the second drawing.

1st PPG Drawing by *CMcC is a little piece of cartoon history. The very first drawing of something many of us have fond memories watching, I can't help but get a warm, fuzzy feeling looking at it. ( Featured by kangel )

It's good to have you here on Deviant Art!  I'm a big Powerpuff Girls fan!  I even came up with an idea for a live-action movie of the Powerpuff Girls, along with costume designs for them!  Here's a drawing I did of my idea:

This photo makes me cry because I miss the old Cartoon Network.
It was my favorite channel growing up because it was not like now.

Honors to meet you officially on this web, Mr. McCracken. Never expected that. I remember waking up even at 6 a.m. for Powerpuffs on elementary school. I even saw those shorts before official series.

Nice work for your first drawing of the three. You're one of the greatest cartoonists in recent history. ^^

Also, am I the only one who noticed that Bubbles in green looks kinda like Eleanor from the Chipettes? :P

That reminds me...I had just seen a preview of the 2016 "revamp"...and to my shame, I was taken in by the rather JPOP-esque theme song (apparently titled "Who's Got The Power?" ) which was catchier than the ones from the anime series Demashitta! Powerpuff Girls Z , and the art looks somewhat refined...however, since I have had this fiery hatred of Cartoon Network in recent years, due largely to their running that pile of unwatchable shit that is Teen Titans GO on maximum rotation on what used to be a decent TV channel (heck, AHC doesn't run my personal fave documentary miniseries Apocalypse WWI that often).....I think I'll wait until the first episode becomes available on those video download services sans commercials.

So Bubbles and Buttercup had their colors switched and Blossom wore her pajamas, Buttercup's name was at first Bud, and their team name was Whoopass girls? ...interesting start. :3

Well the picture here for Blossom kind of looks like her pajamas from the show... So I just thought that.
As for Buttercup's name, I heard it from the 10th anniversary PPG DVDs when Craig mentioned Her name being "Bud" for a short amount of time while talking about the creation of the Whoopass Girls.
